Recently renovated, the Crystal Lodge Motel is a locally owned and operate motel with a retro feel. It’s a small motel with only 15 rooms. With its central location, Crystal Lodge Motel is ideal for a family wanting to visit nearby attractions, such as Hollywood, Santa Barbara, or Malibu, without staying in the hustle-and-bustle of a big city. It’s also budget-friendly. Premier double guestrooms sleep up to four people and feature a microwave and refrigerator. Guestrooms with a full kitchen are available upon request.

Room was fine, and desk staff was nice enough but parking is horrible, the back of the building was horrid, and the neighborhood was most definitely questionable. The door locks were primitive and there were no locks on the windows. A little scary overall.
I honestly wouldn’t have stopped here had we just driven past, luckily we’d read the reviews....the exterior is quite shabby but what a wonderful surprise when we opened our door, I believe the room that we were in (can’t comment on the others) had been recently refurbished and it was modern, clean & well appointed! The bed was very comfortable too ????
My only negative observations were that there was no iron/board & the air con unit was situated under the curtains so all the cold went up & under them rather than into the room, the overhead fan did help slightly.
Neither of these would stop me recommending this place.
